APPENDIX F SUPPLEMENT FOR CHAPTER 4
This appendix provides supplementary information for the analyses reported in Chapter 4. Each Exhibit in the appendix corresponds to an Exhibit of the same number in Chapter 4. The boxes at the bottom of each Exhibit refer to District Eisenhower Coordinator Telephone Survey item numbers or composite variables on which the exhibit is based. District Coordinator Survey item numbers begin with the letter “D,” followed by the section of the survey (part A or B) and the item involved. For example, item numbers “DA044_1, DA044_2, and DA044_3” refer to the District Coordinator Survey part A, item 44_1, 2, and 3. (Item 44_1 is shown on printed copies of the survey as 44a, 44_2 is shown as 44b, etc.) All items referred to in the chapter appear at the end of Appendix G, in Exhibit 5.11d. Composite variables, which appear in all capital letters (for example, PCTIDW), are defined in Exhibit 5.11b.
